About Us

Pastor  Rick Andrews

     My spiritual endeavors started as a junior in high school singing bass in a family southern gospel quartet. From 1970 - 1981 I was priviledged to sing in numerous other quartets.
     On July 20, 1973 my wife Berry and I began our journey into married life and were blessed with two fine children Dawn (Danny) and Alan. We now have three grandchildren Wes, Cam and Alonna.
     In January 1981 God changed our direction when He called us into the Children's Ministry at my home church. This move became a launching pad into almost every office and ministry the church offered.
     In January 1984 God changed my direction again when He called me into the Preaching Ministry. Through many years of training and patience God eventually led me to our first pastorate in January 1996. This pastorate lasted sixteen years.
     After a short sabbatical God moved again and led us to our current pastorate at Oak Grove F.W.B. I became the pastor on October 28, 2012. 
     We will be celebrating our thirty-fourth year in God ministry in February 2018.
                                                         TO GOD BE THE GLORY
